The best adult costumes for costume parties

Wearing an adult costume doesn't mean you have to look silly. You should have fun, but you don't have to embarrass yourself. That said, your costume must be appropriate for the occasion, not vulgar, and — as much as possible — recognizable.

A great costume will leave a good impression on people you meet for the first time, and if you're approachable, it can also be a conversation starter. Even at a costume party, the manly option is to make yourself presentable while not hogging all the attention. To achieve that goal, here's a list of the best adult costumes you can consider.

Leg Avenue Men's Top Gun Flight Suit Costume

Best Easy Costume

Leg Avenue's Top Gun Flight Suit Costume is perfect for Halloween parties and even role-playing. Easily recognizable, this costume is easy to just throw on and go. The suit is made of polyester and is available in sizes small to extra large.

Cosplaysky Jedi Costume

Most Versatile Costume

If you want to get noticed right away, donning this Star Wars-inspired Cosplaysky Jedi Costume is a perfect choice. The linen, cotton, and polyester ensemble will make you want to channel the Force and have a fun party night. If you want a less mysterious look, you can remove the robe and hood and reveal your hairstyle to the expecting crowd.

Rubie's Batman: The Dark Knight Costume

Best Value Costume

Dress up as the Dark Knight without spending a fortune with this value offering from Rubie's. The Rubie's Batman: The Dark Knight Costume ensemble includes a padded jumpsuit with details on the chest and abdomen, attached boot tops, a utility belt, and the iconic headpiece and cape. Keep in mind, though, that the costume's size is different from your regular clothes, so you'll need to consult their size chart to get the right fit.

Opting for quality costumes will not only make your party night comfortable but also memorable, especially if what you wear leads you to meet a new friend or a business connection. Opportunities can arise even at the most fun of parties, so prepare yourself by wearing costumes that will not fail you.
